Privacy Policy

Hyperion Books for Children is committed to helping you make the most of your free time on the Internet within a trusted environment. This privacy policy discloses how we collect, protect, use and share information gathered about you on our web site. We hope that this disclosure will help increase your confidence in our site and enhance your experience on the Internet.

Q1 What types of information is the Hyperion Books for Children site collecting, and how is the site collecting it?

The services on our site are offered without our collecting any personally identifiable information from you. You can access the Hyperion Books for Children web site and view our content anonymously. If you choose to provide us with feedback via e-mail, then you will be providing us with your e-mail address and perhaps your name.

Information Collected from You with Technology:
The Hyperion Books for Children site may collect some information about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our site your IP address is collected so that we know where to send information you are requesting. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. This information is not personally identifiable. Hyperion Books for Children sites use information collected through technology to make our sites more interesting and useful to you. We normally don't combine this type of information with personally identifiable information. However, we will combine this information with personally identifiable information to identify a visitor in order to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, Guests, or others.

What Are Cookies, and How Does Hyperion Books for Children Use Them?
Cookies are pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer while you are viewing the web site. These pieces of information allow the web site to remember important information that will make your use of that site more useful. Hyperion Books for Children and other Internet companies use cookies for a variety of purposes.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many Hyperion Books for Children features that make your web experience more efficient and some of our services may not function properly.

Q2 How does Hyperion Books for Children use the personally identifiable information that has been collected?

Hyperion Books for Children would use your personally identifiable information only as necessary to reply to an e-mail you may send us, or to respond to a request for Advance Readers Copies, etc.

Q3 Does Hyperion Books for Children share information with companies or other organizations that are not part of the Hyperion Books for Children family of sites?

One of the most valuable assets of our business is you. We aren't in the business of selling information about our Guests and do not do so. We will, however, share information for security reasons.

Purchase or Sale of Businesses:
Online business is still in a very early stage and is changing and evolving rapidly. As Hyperion Books for Children continually looks for ways to improve our business, we may buy or sell a company. If we buy or sell a business, the names collected will likely be transferred as a part of the sale. Information about registrants will be used in the aggregate. However, if we buy a business, we will honor the requests that customers made of that business regarding e-mail communications. In the event that we sell a business, we will do everything in our power to ensure that any personally identifiable information you provided to us is not used by the successor business.

Organizations That Help Protect the Security and Safety of Our Guests and Our Sites:
We will give out personal information as required by law, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena; to enforce our Terms of Service, or site or game rules; or to protect the safety and security of Guests and our sites.

Q4 What choices do I have about Hyperion Books for Children collecting, using, and sharing my information?

It is possible for you to use our site without giving us any personally identifiable information. E-mails to Hyperion Books for Children are strictly voluntary. Also, as mentioned above, there are ways to limit the information collected through technology -- though some of our features won't work if you decide to do this.

Q5 What type of security does Hyperion Books for Children provide?

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our Guests is of utmost concern to us. Hyperion Books for Children takes technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect all visitors' information.
